RHOBH Lisa Rinna is facing the heat with her flip comment about cancer in the final episode of Season 12 of Real Housewives in Beverly Hills.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Lisa Rinna is accused of fighting cancer.
Lisa Rinna made some controversial remarks in the finale episode of Season 12 of Real Housewives in Beverly Hills, which aired Wednesday night.
If you didn’t know, during the episode, Rinna claimed that she would be ‘ill and get cancer’ if she didn’t share her alleged secret about Kathy Hilton.
But the reference to cancer doesn’t go well with scientists who study the disease.
The president of the American Cancer Research Institute said: TMZ
Rinna ‘justifies expressing her displeasure by using the specter of cancer as an emotional threat.’
Also, scientists say the 59-year-old actress is completely wrong about how cancer enters the body.
They added that there is currently no evidence that stress may be one of the causes of cancer.
An AICR spokesperson also noted that Rinna’s information on cancer development was ‘certainly not based on reputable studies’.
Still, they said Rinna ‘may have taken the popular (but erroneous) concept’ of cancer. Not only that, he shared it with viewers to heighten the drama.
Camille Grammer Disses Lisa Rinna’s Cancer Remarks
A fan shared a clip of Lisa Rinna’s cancer comment on Twitter. They asked for more Camille Grammer’s views on the statement.
Fans say, ‘I’m curious. [Camille Grammer] How does it feel to see Lisa use cancer in this way to excuse her poor? [behavior] When have you been through it? venomous.’
The 54-year-old star responded by beating her former co-star.
She said, ‘I had cancer and thought the taste was bad. poor.’
Grammer has fought cancer twice so far. In 2013, she was diagnosed with stage 2 endometrial cancer and had a radical hysterectomy shortly thereafter. And almost five years later, in 2017, she was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma.
Also, the mother of two at the time shared her thoughts about cancer in an interview with PEOPLE magazine.
‘Cancer really stinks,’ she said. Unfortunately it is up to our family. I have a genetic predisposition to cancer because I was diagnosed with Lynch syndrome 15 years ago.’
